Sarah Likes “Same Kind of Different as Me”

The movie “Same Kind of Different as Me” came out yesterday, and I haven’t seen it yet.  Have you?  If it’s not too late, please do yourself a favor and read the book first!

The movie is getting good reviews, but what I have heard from people who have read the book and then seen the movie is that the movie is good but not as good as the book.  Isn’t that how it always is?

I talked about the book in one of my very first “likes” about Real Change newspaper.  This book, in addition to being entertaining and page turning, really made me think about homelessness and putting my Faith into action.

The two authors, Ron Hall and Denver Moore, became best friends through Ron’s wife Deborah. When they met, Ron was a rich art dealer and Denver was a former sharecropper who had been homeless for years.  Ron’s wife encouraged their friendship, and the rest of the book follows their lives together, and the changes they make in each other.  You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll be inspired.
